A Tribe Called Quest Edition of GUE Radio

Check the rhime, y'all
It's finally here!

I was inspired to make Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 5 a tribute to A Tribe Called Quest after viewing their documentary.  Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest portrayed honestly and artistically the paths that brought Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi Brown together, kept them together, and split them apart. Just learning the story behind my favorite ATCQ songs inspired me to listen to their entire discography, and to dedicate Vol. 5 to them.  

If you're familiar with them, sit back and reminisce.  If not, learn a bit and discover the main influence of today's biggest artists and producers.  I also encourage you to visit RapGenius to get deeper into the lyrics and to contribute your knowledge.
